places. for the second year in a row, the worst commute is during the afternoon on highway 101 in san francisco between the 280 interchange and treasure island. the second worse is westbound 80 between hercules and san francisco and that applies to both the morning and evening drives. next is the afternoon commute on southbound 101. fourth is innocent 680 from mission boulevard and rounding out the five worth commutes, northbound 880 from mowry community to winton avenue in hayward. >> that's a bad one. sal has been talking about some bad traffic stuff here. you started off like that. >> we did works that fatal auto-pedestrian collision on eastbound 880 coming out of san francisco. eastbound 80 right at 4th
street. a deadly collision with a pedestrian and a car. for a while, three lanes were closed as the fire department, police officers were up on the freeway and the coroner did eventually take away the body of the person killed. traffic was never really that slow, only because it was early in the morning and it did not affect the commute. >> gilroy to san jose, it is going to be a nice commute right through morgan hill. so far, anyway. certainly a lot of people around the road but we don't have enough to make any big slow downs, just yet into the silicon valley. that includes people coming from mountain view towards palo alto. this is a live look aft 280. traffic looks good getting up to highway 17. bay bridge, a little bit of a backup. they may have turned the metering lights up here.

did chew up the low cloud deck. now the bulk of this went through oregon, also into washington, idaho, montana. there was some snow up in the higher elevation. we were on the southwestern edge of it but enough to stir things up and pick that breeze. 50s, 60s, cool and others pretty warm. gilroy, 52. 51 up in fountain. 59 san jose state. 49 looks like so cal. there is a breeze for some. hayward shows offshore, yet onshore, san francisco, half moon bay and truckey at 37 degrees. does not take long for the mountains to cool off. once you get into the mountains, those lows drop pretty quick. i would think that thursday, there could be some light dusting of snow. thursday early morning. the system coming in, they
don't have a lot of moisture, some buff not a lot. the end result will be a pretty chilly pattern here. 60s, 70s, to a few near 80 degrees. late wednesday, thursday will feel more fall-like, not summer-like. >> interesting, steve. >> thank you. time is now 5:23. a big legal move planed of by one of the big names in the toy business as we head closer to the holiday season. we'll tell you what toys'r'us are about to do in its stores. and chipotle hit by a sexual harassment lawsuit. what one man said happened to him when he worked in a store in san jose.
